What is Cartafreccia Special

Just looking around at Italian train schedules and came across the term Cartafreccia Special.

Any idea what that is?

Are these fares available to all or do you have to be somebody special?

Do the Italian trains have deals similar to the French TGV trains 3 months out, etc?

I don't know about the Cartafreccia, but I do know that advance reservation for the »Frecce« trains can give you a considerable discount. Just use http://www.trenitalia.com/tcom-en, and don't forget to use the Italian originals for city names.

The Cartafreccia is a loyalty card for the Trenitalia trains. You have to be an Italian resident to get one. The Cartafreccia Special is a 50% discount offered on certain days of the week.
